The Pixie Cottage Challenge/ Passionately Artistic

It's Wednesday and another Passionately Artistic Challenge. Lots of opportunity to win this time. Every 50th entry is a winner!! Be sure to stop by and join the party this week! Do you have those months when you have lots of birthday and anniversaries. November is one of those months, my dad, sis, niece, nephew, stepdaughter and myself all have birthdays + 2 anniversaries. That means lots of cards :) This one is for my step daughter whose birthday is Friday. I started with a handful of my vintage buttons and a heart. Added some ribbon dyed to match, embossing, a border cut with a Spellbinder Fleur De Lis and a MS punched edge that I accordian pleated to make a simple feminine card. I used Mona's CR84Fn42 color challenge.

PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE

How about joining us this week?? We have a sketch or you can chose to use the theme which is Family Thankfulness. Since this is the time of year we seem to be thinking about the things we are thankful for I made a Thanksgiving card. Im thankful for many things but most especially for my wonderful family! This is fun little step card is for my sweet Sis Shannon. I used three different Pixie Cottage images. I cut the two
figures out of the scenes, water
colored and put on the first step. Then
I punched lots of ovals and circles to make the pumpkins along with the leaves for the second step. The third step has the pumpkin bench image with another little pumpkin to sit on the bench. I made some leaves for the side step and attached little pumpkin to the sentiment. The papers were embossed and edges distressed. The sentiments were mounted on Spellbinder label # 21 and the beaded circles.
